And you will be bless!

On my mission the Africans would always say that. I love it! Anyway I have so much to blog about which I will get to someday, but right now I just have to say how blessed we have been. I'm amazed! I have really wanted to get serious about getting our food storage this year and have been working on it as much as I can. You just have to know that when you want to do something the prophet asks you to do, Heavenly Father is going to help you do it. Soooooooo, on with the list. Twice now someone has called us that is moving and decides to just give us their food storage and emergency preparedness stuff, hundreds of dollars worth of food and supplies!!!! A free deep freezer, free flats of strawberries for jam, a great inside deal on some heavy duty storage shelves. I know there is more that I'm forgetting at this moment but basically our storage room is overflowing. I see how the Lord blesses us way more than we deserve, it makes me want to be so much better!

That is awesome...you go girl! Food storage has always been a difficult thing for me to keep up with...I don't know why - we always have a little but not enough for us to survive for very long.

CONGRATS!! That is so exciting! I guess we have to put in a little more effort to actually receive those kind of blessings, huh. Did you get my message about Rebecca Garfield?

That's great! We have been such slackers in our food storage, we need to learn from your example :)

Alright! It is comforting to have a little stashed away. Our RS recently had a dry milk party. I now have dry milk in our "food storage" that I gotta use!
Your fam is cute cute.
